Academic Support

At Temple University, we provide the academic support you need to succeed in your English-language classes and to become a more proficient English speaker.


Free tutoring is available every week. There is no need to make an appointment; you may just drop in and see a tutor.

Conversation Partners

IELP understands that you might have a difficult time speaking with Americans outside the classroom. Conversation partners allow for language practice and cultural exchange in a relaxed atmosphere. You may participate in networking events and sign up for weekly conversations at the Writing Center.

Office Hours

All IELP instructors hold weekly office hours, when you can stop by and ask questions, get help and discuss how you are doing in your classes.
